The entertainment provided by the Burlington Capitol Theater not only improves the quality of life in our community but is also a driver of tourism and economic activity. The proposed additions of a 120-seat black box theater and improved sound equipment will allow the staff at the Capitol to create and schedule diverse programming. This initiative will enhance the lives of Southeast Iowa residents and attract new and returning tourists whose spending greatly contributes to the local economy.
Located in the heart of downtown, the restored Burlington Capitol Theater recaptures an era when movies and live entertainment were enjoyed in beautiful and unique theaters.
This 1937 Art Deco jewel re-opened in 2012. The intimate 367–seat venue, along with its reception and gallery annex, hosts independent and classic films as well as local, regional, and national touring artists performing on a 1,500–square foot stage.
